Colby Lewis lost his eighth game of the season pitching 6 1/3 innings and giving up four hits and three runs.  He walked three and struck out two.  Ryan Feierabend pitched an inning giving up two hits and a run with two strikeouts and Roman Mendez pitched 2/3 of an inning. 

Jacoby Ellsbury drew a walk, Brett Gardner had a hit and an RBI and Carlos Beltran had a hit and drew a walk.  Brian McCann had a hit and an RBI, Chase Headley had a hit and an RBI and Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and drew a walk.  Francisco Cervelli had a hit and an RBI, Gardner, Cervelli and McCann each hit a double.  The Yankees were 1-7 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Ellsbury had a stolen base. 

Shin-Soo Choo had a hit and drew a walk, Elvis Andrus had a hit and an RBI and Jim Adduci drew a walk.  J.P. Arencibia had a hit and an RBI, Leonys Martin drew a walk and Rougned Odor had two hits.  Odor hit a double, Arencibia hit a homerun and the Rangers were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base. 

In the third Andrus hit an RBI single and the Rangers took a 1-0 lead.  The Yankees tied the game in the fourth on a Headley RBI single.  The Yankees took the lead in the fifth inning on a Cervelli RBI double and a Gardner sacrifice fly.  They had a 3-1 lead which got trimmed to 3-2 on an Arencibia solo homerun in the seventh inning.  The Yankees had a 3-2 lead and added an insurance run in the eighth on a McCann RBI double.  The Yankees took a 4-2 lead and that would be the final score.  The Yankees took three out of four in the series and have won six of seven on the homestand.  They will now start a three game series at home against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.
